    Can someone give me some suggestions on where to look to see wh y the exim process is terminating unexpectedly. I'm still new to exim on Linux so I don't know where everything is just yet. :confused:

    Thanks!!

    SSH to your server and look for errors in the log files that might help in troubleshooting the problem. Run the following commands at the prompt:
    less /var/logs/maillog
    less /var/logs/exim_mainlog

    Thanks for that. I don't see any process failures, or terminations in either file yesterday (27th). I noticed something just a moment ago though, when I execute 'service exim stop' clamd, antirelayd, and spamd all stop, but exim fails to stop. When I do a ps -A|grep exim I have one process for exim that wont terminate, and it says defunt next to it, but I can't kill it. Why is that?
